The New York Mets won Sunday’s continuation of Saturday’s rain-postponed game against the Cincinnati Reds in 13 innings on a walk-off fielder’s choice hit by Lucas Duda.
Saturday’s game was postponed after six innings with the score tied 1–1. Mets rightfielder Curtis Granderson hit a solo home run in the third and Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips hit an RBI double in the fifth.
On Saturday, the tie held until the 13th inning, when Mets second baseman Dilson Herrera walked, Granderson singled him to third and third baseman Ruben Tejada reached on an error by Reds shortstop Eugenio Suarez to load the bases.
Duda then chopped a high grounder to first base, where the Reds’ Joey Votto was unable to field the ball, allowing Herrera to score the winning run.
The game was the first of a doubleheader on Sunday at Citi Park. Mets rookie lefthander Steven Matz will make his major-league debut in the nightcap, going against Reds righthander Josh Smith.
